I’ve build thousands of sets of stairs, but none like this. the 2 stringers are 3×12s and the treads are 4×12s screwed with sds screws then plugged and sanded. they are made out of douglas fir.

Visually striking! I thought at first the treads were “hollow”.

I’ve done a few stairs myself. I must say, these are among the coolest I’ve seen. Love the exposed work and large timbers.

Great heavy duty stairs, what are the stair rails going to be? Thank you for sharing.
